tonsillitis

Developed sudden sore throat a wk ago within a few days later my nose was congested, my eyes were red & I had yellow mucus. I then developed a once in awhile tickly throat cough.
I took sinus pills and while my eyes & nose are almost cleared my sore throat is not. I feel like I have a lump in my throat, I am at times swallowing frequently & it is so sore at times I can barely swallow.  
Any thoughts on what could be going on?

Viruses don't respond to sinus pills (or any pills, what are sinus pills by the way).  You likely have or had a virus and what you do for a virus is comfort care.  That means ibuprofen/acetaminophen for pain relief and inflammation relief, fluids, things like hot tea to sooth, gargle with salt water, those numbing products you spray or su ck on.  It should run it's course.  good luck
